WTF's happening in 1st teaser for American Horror Story: Coven?

After months of anticipation, FX has released the first promo for American Horror Story: Coven. As the title suggests, it centers on the world of witches. The season is set in New Orleans and reintroduces actors old and new. Once again, Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson will return, but this time as mother and daughter. Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga and Lily Rabe will also slip into different roles.

At last week's TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour, Lange revealed, "I do play a witch. We move back and forth in time. It encompasses a lot of different stories. I've shot two days so far, one day entrances and exits, the other day a scene."

The series will take place in present day as well as the 1830s. Newcomers to the show Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates will play historical characters well-versed in witchcraft and voodoo. In the first TV spot, we're taken aback by the footage. It shows a room full of women hanging from walls. What does that mean? Your guess is as good as ours.

Check out the first promo below:
